, in this recession? how is america surviving? tonight, we revisit some of the key economic stories affecting your life, the collapse of the dollar, global currency. it is an eye-opening show you can't afford to miss. hello, america. happy black friday, the official start of the christmas shopping season, but how merry will this chris christmas be if we're facing a $12 trillion national debt this year -- $12 trillion? that's up from $6 trillion 7 and a half years a ago. we are literally spending ourselves into oblivion and there's no end in sight. i want to show you a video from cnbc. i was dumbfounded by this interview because the host didn't say, what? i have never heard anyone on television say these things before i saw this. >> oil looks higher. gold looks higher. currencies look weaker, all for the reasons that we talked about before. you've got huge wage disparities. i don't know how that inevitably resolves itself t may resolve itself in some type of global currency crisis, and then if the global currency crisis unfolds, then inevitably you get, i guess, an alignment under a global world go
of america saw the document but did not show us they did any analysis to make up for merrill commissions. on the contrary, the evidence we have suggests that bank of america pulled a number out of thin air. far from being consistent with the actual experience of october or what they knew about the third quarter, the guess, wistfully assumed that the markets for collateralized debt obligation and credit default swaps would be significantly better in november and december. it was assumed that merrill lynch would almost break even for november. then the attorneys at bank of america went to work. they did not question the financial information they were given. . e financial information they were given. they begin with the assumption additional shareholder disclosure was necessary and they discussed what kind of exposure they would make but after studying the question for a week they decided the news was not sufficiently out of line from past performance than previous disclosures to warrant further shareholder disclosure. the sunmaid icuf council bank of america did not make any further discl
plan for america. but let's remember the pelosi plan for jobs. an $8 billion stimulus plan that caused unemployment to go from 8.5% to over 10%. let's remember the pelosi plan for automobiles. cash for clunkers. a $3 billion program that even the democrats agreed did not work and it was killed after three weeks. the pelosi plan for fiscal discipline, $1.4 trillion debt this year, the highest in history. and let's not forget the pelosi plan for national security, dithering in afghanistan. now we have the pelosi plan for health care. it kills small businesses and jobs, it raises taxes, it raises premiums, it cuts medicare, it takes away your current health care coverage and spends $1 trillion. vote no on the pelosi plan for a government takeover of health care and join the bipartisan members of this congress who plan to do so and promote an alternative which is far better. thank you and i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman's time has expired. the gentleman from michigan reserves. the gentleman from new york is recognized. mr. rangel: thank you, madam speaker. i yield for
79%. north dakota, one company, 89% in fact, across america 94% of markets are not competitive. we need real competition to lower costs. we need the choice of a public health insurance option. >>> not every in new york is cheered out. still some folks out there. welcome back to "the early show." takes big morning for us. we have an old friend here who has been missing for the last couple of months. julie is back. as you know, she's a new mom. we'll find out what has been going on with julie. >> i saw her in hair and makeup. she looks fantastic. she's the gold standard of fantastic. >>> also this morning, a new h1n1 health warning. if up the flu, how much you you weigh may determine how sick you get. a new study show as large number of obese h1n1 victims are nding in the hospital. we'll have all the details on that. >>> there's had this other piece of news this morning and as i have said so on which, are you in fact, a doctor, the vet friday naer medicine. what is this about a cat? >> it came out yesterday that an h1n1 was confirmed in a pet cat in iowa. this cat lived in a home whe
wheelchairs, taxing pacemakers, taxing hearing aids. this bill is not right for america, it's not right for families, it's not right for small businesses and it's not right for seniors. we need real solutions. let's focus on reducing the costs, maybe, offer tax incentives, enact medical liability reform, allow people to buy insurance across state lines. these solutions bring lower costs and bring health care to those who really need it. mr. speaker, the most troubling aspect, though, of this bill is that it takes away freedom. and this freedom, mr. speaker, the house is not in order. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is correct. the house will be in order. mr. reichert: mr. speaker, the most troubling aspect of this bill is that it takes away freedom. and this freedom came through great sacrifice. the sacrifice of men and women throughout history of this great nation so that we could choose and live a free life. this bill takes away that freedom, the freedom to choose the health care that's right for you and your family, this bill takes away that freedom requiring every american to
: madam speaker, i rise today in strong support of h.r. 3962, the affordable health care for america act. choices regarding health care are some of the most personal decisions we make. the ability to choose one's doctor and decide on a course of treatment with one's physician is an american right and so is access to affordable health care. most of us can agree that our current health insurance system is broken. the cost of insurance has skyrocket nd recent years, leaving many families struggling to struggle or go without. others are denied insurance due to pre-existing conditions. saddling them with terrible medical debt when they need treatment. these treatments, along with other factors, madam speaker, have led to nearly 50 million americans without any health insurance. 71,000 live in my district. i urge the passage of this bill. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman's time has expired. the gentleman from new jersey reserves. the gentleman from minnesota is recognized. mr. kline: at this time, i'm very pleased to yield one minute to the gentlelady from north carolina, former member o
-wrenching what you describe there. >> i think there are so many parents in america that face what i faced and todd faced, and that was some surprising news that not everything was going to be quote unquote normal or perfect with the pregnancy. what i describe in the sbook the process i went through through a lot of prayer that was finally accepting that trig was going to be a gift from god and my prayer was certainly answered the moment he was born when i realized oh, my gosh, god knew what he was doing and trig would be a perfect fit in our family. sean: but there was a period of time you -- before you could tell wrur husband about this. tell us how you describe it in the books. >> right. that was a rough couple weeks, three weeks when todd and i were physically apart and i didn't want to tell him over the phone that our child would have down syndrome. i wanted to be able to sit down and look him in the eyes. when i was finally able to tell him todd had such great perspective and reaction to it and probably a better reaction than i did at first when he was quite accepting and reassuring
of tax cuts to the -- that america needs to security medical future. i want to say to our seniors, you can count on medicare, on a federal program for dignity and peace of mind in your golden years and that will not change. today we will vote to protect your access to your doctor, to encourage medicare physicians to cooperate on higher quality care, to keep your medicare solvent for longer and bring an end to the doughnut hole that leaves prescription drugs unaffordable for so many. i want to say to our small business men and women, i know your premiums keep going up and eachier they make it harder to stay in business, to compete with big business and with foreign firms. you deserve a fair playing field and in the insurance exchange marketplace you'll be able to buy coverage at the low group rates you're now being denied. i want to say to the 35 million americans without insurance who are forced to skip checkups and preventive care, forced it to return to the e.r. as the first and only line of defense, who live sicker and shorter lives, you will have what every man, woman and child has
in america today. that massive change is because we have already turned over to the federal government most of our financial systems for them to be managing it. so they control our purse. this government controls the purse of america. and we have done that this year. it's there. we bailed people out. we are now voting members of financial organizations and businesses, like automobile firms. now we want to control the american people's purse. now we have to say to ourselves, well, what's going to happen when we do, when we create this great system, how do we know what it's going to look like? i want to use this, quite frankly but it's not fair because it's one-sided and this document is two-sided. but this document printed in smaller font is two-sided. here's what we have in the way of what the government needs to create for a health care plan. this is the substitute, the people's idea. it's the difference, ladies and gentlemen, between liberty and government. and you know, this week a whole lot of people came an awful long way so they could express their opinion and they were called radical
bankrupting america. guest: i think that the viewer's concerns reflect the concern that is widespread in the united states about national sovereignty, about control, and i do think that those concerns clash with the need to confront the problem. if in fact we do not address this problem in international and comprehensive way, how in the world do we address it? it may well be that the listeners was not believe in global warming, in which case -- it may well be that the listener does not believe in global warming, in which case he has nothing to worry about. if you believe that the emissions from china, india, and the united states contribute to global warming, it appears there is no other way to approach that issue then some kind of international agreement and some kind of enforcement. host:ueueueueueueueueueueueueueh warming, it appears there is no other way to approach that issue then some kind of international agreement and some kind of enforcement. host: dallas, roger, good morning. caller: good morning. man-made climate change, which which we have called global warming, has not be
city. america's honor the heroes killed at fort hood and a holiday celebration goes haywire, landing four people in the hospital. i'm julie banderas and we're live as fox reports tonight. cold war enemies coming together for a nuclear-free world? as president obama makes his first ever visit to china as commander-in-chief, the u.s. and russia clear a major hurdle for a new armed control deal. in the meantime, the president shares sharp words for another country that's become a thorn in america's side. fallout from the decision to put suspected al-qaeda tris on trial in new york city. democrats defending the move, republicans slamming it. >> when the foreman of that jury stands up and delivers the victim, not empowered by the religious if a natsism, but the constitution, he'll know he's wrong. this seems to be the rights of terrorists and lack of concerns for the public. >> and a plan to put gitmo detainees in america's heartland causing another big controversy. why some in one small town see it as an economic boon. plus, a massive offensive in afghanistan underway right now. u.s. and
ideas and find something that's right for america to lower the cost of health care, the pelosi health care bill is going to skyrocket health care, costs for everybody, skyrocket taxes and we've got to stop it and i yield back. . mr. gingrey: i wants to yield to dr. fleming if he has any concluding remarks and i welcome any of my colleagues who remain on the floor if you can. we have another 20 minutes and i would yield back to the gentleman from louisiana. mr. fleming: i thank the gentleman. yeah, to conclude my comments, i was comparing in contrasting the pelosi bill with the republican bill. the bottom line, mr. speaker, is, there's only two ways you can control cost. there is the nancy pelosi way where you have an extremely large governmental system that disconnects the patient and the doctor from the cost and it leaves it to the government. it leaves it to a very, very distant decision maker in the federal government to make decisions about our personal lives and put in force things that we have no control over. that's leading to rationing and long lines the way canada and the u.k
war or financial crisis. that was their plan. the interest wants to keep america in debt. you keep america in dead by having a financial crisis or make war. this is why the media is controlled by war mongeres. host: we're going to leave it there. on the twitter board. we have this tweet. "this is great. hopefully there is a lot of dirt on bush and cheney and this can come out and bush can be sent to trial as a war criminal." >> another post says "wake up, mr. president, we are at war here." host: back to the phone. on the line for democrats go ahead? caller: that last caller is probably still talking, huh? host: might be. what are your thoughts? caller: i have one sentence to sum up my feelings -- host: let's move on to the line for republicans in massachusetts. caller: good morning. i wanted to comment on the logistics of actually prosecuting these people in the south district of new york. we are not using the full inspect rum of legal options available to us. evidence was gathered and this was in civilian setings. now we are talking about prosecuting people we captured on a=nĂ
. >> schieffer: do you think this puts the people of new york at risk? >> i think america is at risk continually from the threat from radical jihadists. we saw it in fort hood ten days ago. to say that new york is on list. i think new york has been on the list ever since 2001. we know we were attacked in 1993. we know that we were attacked in 2001. i think that al qaeda and radical jihadists, if they could attack us again in new york, they would. >> schieffer: they talk now in their reports that the administration is now examining various federal prison sites in this country. illinois. illinois is one of them. they were talking a while ago about perhaps putting them in prisons in michigan, your home state. how do you feel about that? >> well, the president has never answered the question why. i'm all about problem-solving. what problem is the president going to solve by moving these trials to new york or by moving get mow prisoners to michigans to illinois, to colorado? he hasn't outlined what problem he's solving. i don't see the problem of moving them from gitmo. it's been a great place. we've
. this is a national security issue what is gue best for the united states of america. my understanding is senator jim web from virginia has come out and said this isn't a good idea. none the less i do agree. it's important to put politics aside and focus on what is best for the national security of our country. >> you say you don't believe of the three alternatives you cite either no trial or detention military commission or trial in the civil federal courts in the united states why is this inappropriate when so many people suggest isn't this exactly where it should be held the mayor of the city michael bloomberg who i guess is technically a republican his police commissioner ray kelly tough as nails ex-marine they both say it is appropriate to have it here. the city can handle it and why not? >> i agree the city can probably handle it better than any other city in the world quite frankly. but as to whether or not this is the appropriate place, i think you have to look at a number of factors. for example the level of security that will be required to have this kinds of trial in the middle of new york
and what we have asked is that america come to this capitol, fill up these capitol grounds, fill up this building, be here for a press conference at noon tomorrow over on the west side of the capitol steps and we will have members of congress that are here tonight, michelle bachmann, tom price, michael burgess and others along with jon voight and this will be a meeting tomorrow at the west steps of the capitol and stay on the hill because you will have taken the hill. and i yield. mr. hoekstra: we got a call and two people from oregon saying, we're coming, we will be there on thursday. late tuesday night, they were wondering what they could do to have an impact. they said we are coming from oregon to be there on thursday. another one of our colleagues reported tonight, we don't know how many people are going to show up. but there are 10 buses coming from new jersey. tonight he said -- 24 buses coming from his congressional district in new jersey tomorrow to be here today with us. and we don't know exactly what's going to happen, but it's a clear indication that in four, five short d

. >> if somebody murders americans and they murder americans in america, they ought to be prosecuted in america and hopefully convicted in america. >> republicans say a civilian trial will also give the alleged terrorists the public platform they want. >>> brand new details on the alleg allege ft. hood shotter. he's saying he did not pressure to hurt americans. the cleric could tell he was becoming uncomfortable in the u.s. military. the cleric told the "post" reporter hasan's killing spree is allowed under islam because it a form of jihad, and because the united states started the battle in muslim countries. has sn accused of shooting and killing 13 people at ft. hood. s he is still in the hospital. >>> and president obama is in china. china financed massive sums of u.s. debt. part of the president's talks may include assurances those investments are safe. the president held a town hall meeting with college students in shanghai where he push for greater freedoming in china. >> we do not seek to impose any system of government on any other nation, but we also don't believe that the principles t
with the passage of affordable health care for america act we will make history. we will also make progress for america's working families. >> reporter: and next up, the senate and the president told democrats yesterday if we don't get this done this year, we're not going to get it done any time soon because next year is an election year. >> there's so much debate on both sides of the aisle. what exactly does this bill include. >> this bill does include a public option and it includes coverage for 36 million uninsured. right now there are 50 million uninsured in in country estimated. it provides subsidies for those who can't afford premiums. there's a very controversial amendment a compromise reached at the last minute prohibiting coverage of abortions for those getting federal funds for their insurance coverage, jenna. >> mike, thank you so much. david gregory is moderator of "meet the press." david joins us this morning. >> good morning. >> this time yesterday a lot of people wondering whether democrats would be able to get this done. now that it is all done, what does this mean for not o
.d. america"? he sat in that church for 20 years. it still amazes me that that was not a bigger issue in the campaign. >> it should of been a bigger issue because i think it was indicative of some of the "tolerance" of the candidate in terms of hearing a message and being fed things that are not good for our country. sean: is the president more radical than he let on? do you think the president is radical? >> i will not hesitate that his associates have been extremely radical. we've seen that in some of the appointments that he has made. again, i think it is unfair to the electorate for a candidate or a campaign to hesitate in calling someone out on what the record really represents. greta: governor palin drew huge crowds during the campaign and guess what, she is doing it again. people are lining up to see the governor. our record producer is in michigan, where governor palin launched her book tour today. >> we are on location in grand rapids, where thousands of people as early as 9:00 p.m. last night stood on line to get their copy of "going rogue." >> i waited all day to get them.
agreement on the kinds of steps we need to take in order to lower the cost of health care in america and expand access. the bill before us in my view is a big government takeover of our health care system that will replace the current health care that americans get. republicans have offered better solutions all year on the major bills that have come to this floor. i think we had a much better solution on the stimulus bill that would have created twice the jobs at half the cost. i think our better solution on the budget clearly had less spending and less debt and lower deficits. i think our all-of-the-above american energy plan -- the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman will suspend. the gentleman may proceed. mr. boehner: i think our all-of-the-above american energy plan was a much better solution to the national energy tax, the so-called cap and trade bill that was on this floor in june. and i believe what we have before us as the republican substitute is a commonsense plan that takes steps toward reducing the cost of health insurance in america and expand access. simple things like
just out in paper back guilty liberal victims and their assault on america. great stuff on sarah palin i will be referencing later. -- the partisan divide how this is automatically reflex democrats against republicans. isn't it an issue where politicians staked out their turf with little regard for the facts? >> i am glad you asked me that. there were things like that where democrats worried about poor security. some democrats on our side this argument we are at war. the democrats want to treater wrists like they are defendants and saying no it's a war. it's an argument when the cases were going to the supreme court. even when he was captured on american soil no it should be a military tribunal. >> have they moved into any suburban neighborhoods opened up shops in any malls? have they raped or murdered anybody? >> the main problem isn't security. >> the main problem is in the head. >> the main problem is not security as you seem to think. although your arguments we can handle it, we can hand tell. new york city handled 9-11 honorably and heroically. it's not that you want another 9-11
. of course, the jobs summit coming up. but this is what people in america are talking about. how in the world did this happen? a couple of reality star wannabes walk into the white house on -- you know, the white house on pennsylvania avenue, the one where the presidents have been living all these years, and shakes hands with the president of the united states. look at that picture. the prime minister of india is standing a few feet away. now, then they go have -- let's get a picture with joe. joe's a good guy. can i get my hands on the vice president? apparently they've been used to doing this kind of stuff. look, folks. let me play this for just a moment. what if they were experts in martial arts? what if they had some kind of poison or undetectable drug on them? the secret service failed big-time here. now they're scrambling to figure out, oh, gosh, what went wrong? the "washington post" had this report. these folks, they were allowed inside, in violation of secret service policies by an outside officer of the front gate who was persuaded by the couple's manner and insistence as well as pr
assaulting me in the hallway asking me if we have the votes, the answer is question. america and the american people won today. it was about them, not about us. it was not about party, but people. this was about making sure every american in the phrase we use so often has access to quality affordable healthcare. has assurance they'll always have it. i'm proud of the democrats, proud of the congress. this was as you -- i'm sure you observed a bipartisan vote. working together. to achieve with a we promised the american public we would do, and what president obama said needed to be done, what every democratic candidate running for office said need to be done and what john mccain said needed to be done. not specifically this bill, but to give americans assurance of healthcare security. we have done that tonight. much work remains. i want to congratulate speaker pelosi, without whom this night, this victory would not have achieved. [ applause ] her focus, her vision, her tenacity, her energy, her commitment to achieving this objective for the american people and for the children around which she

one of the unique advantages that america has which is the fact that we are able to develop capital and credit in a way that allows people who want to go out and take risks and create jobs to get that capital and credit. that's something that no other nation has yet been able to replicate at the levels that we have been able to do it as a nation. and we have to be careful that responding to a dries sis which had a lot of underlying causes, that we don't fundamentally harm that unique advantage that america has. and so i guess that's how i come at this. so let's look at the causes that cause this crisis. we were all there on the front line when it collapsed on us. primarily it was real estate. it was a real estate bubble. now, i've been through three of these in my professional experien experience, once as a bank attorney for a small bank in new hampshire, once as governor of new hampshire when five of my seven largest banks failed and this time. in p every instance a real estate bubble is a function of the fact that there's a disconnect between underwriting and responsibility. loans

. afghanistan is separate. america has more in common with india. the need to try to negotiate so they can bring an end to the hostilities. pakistan has the from cards to the solution in that place. until it comes to the table i believe we will have a problem. host: thank you for the call again. stories in the paper this morning, from "the new york times" this says that abdullah was planning to quit the race and this morning it is true. i walk, what does this mean to the president's physician about -- state of iowa, what does this mean on the president's decision to send more troops? caller: he should send more. there is a lot of violence and chaos over there. there was a lot of disruption, the president's brother selling drugs, there is no way for that guy to like women -- to like win an election. host: baltimore, republican line. your reaction to the news from overnight? actually it is floyd in south fork, north carolina. caller: i do not think that any of the president's that we have ever had has ever wanted to dad for the country. they have all wanted to do something good. we need to give th
will start off asking your reaction to comments by columnist who asks, could america go broke? the number -- host: you can reach us at twitter, c-spanwj is how you can do that. and you can e-mail us, it and if you have called any of the c-span program in the last 30 days give someone else a chance. first, a look at the legislative business of the week. health care legislation gets teed up in the house. the front-page headline of "roll call." they write getting to the vote will require leaders to hurtle hangups over abortion and immigration language, moderates gripes on the overall cost of the bill, liberal demands for symbolic votes and their preferred provisions. also an unknown are re of parochial concerns. writing about the legislation coming up. host: that sent "will call." we will talk about this week and next week -- but our question this morning is more broadly on spending, based on a column that "could america go broke?" he writes this morning that the idea of a major advance country would default on its debt -- host: we will get more comments from this column
. think about this. finally people in america, if your kid gets sick, you're not going to be thrown off your health care coverage. if you've got a kid you want to keep on your health care coverage when they're in college until they're 26 years old, they can stay on your own family's health care coverage. you have all kinds of prevention provisions in there that really bring us to looking at health and not just health care and health insurance down the road. so i think the $127 billion saving on the deficit, you might says that's a conserve-a-dem issue. i think it should be for everyone in the country we finally have a bill that will save that much. we have a problem in this country that we've been able to put together a health care bill that brings us closer to bringing down the cost for health care, that will allow american companies to compete with companies in other countries, that allow small businesses who pay 20% more for their health care to finally be able to get some leverage so they can less expensive health care? that's what this bill is about. >> i didn't mean to imply that
generation. that's why this museum is such an important part of who we are as a people in america. and that's why that legacy was handed off to my brothers and me, influenced all of us, everyone of us served in the military. not because we're more patriotic than the next-door neighbor, but it was part of who we are. it was part of who my parents were. every one of my uncles served in world war ii. the media today is full of stories about how desperate the situation is in afghanistan. i had brought with me for a five different newspapers, all of which have a story here on page one or about how bad things are in afghanistan. you can take the word afghanistan out of the article and two years ago the word would have been iraq. well, guess what? they won the war in iraq. soldiers, sailors, airmen, guardsmen and marine in the united states of america won that war. and yet you would not know that from the media, because as soon as the war turned around they stopped covering it. and today all the bad news is coming out of afghanistan. i would like to remind young people who didn't have that blessin
the affordable health care for america act. the bill would more accurately be entitled, the big spending, big taxing, big entitlement, pelosi plan for big government takeover of america's health care act. despite house majority leader steny hoyer claiming that during their press conference that the health care bill was part of an open and transparent process to reform our health care system, the american people were oddly prohibited from even attending the liberal democrat's pub less -- publicity rally on the steps of the capitol. mr. speaker, this really isn't surprising considering the democrats habit of frozing -- freezing republicans out of the process. mr. speaker, the new pelosi plan looks and sounds starkly similar to the democrat's first attempts at a big government takeover of health care, h.r. 3200. that is because essentially it is the same big government socialist nonsense speaker pelosi introduced months ago. the same plan that caused nearly millions -- cause literally millions of american to speak out against it through letters, petitions, protests and by showing up to register
think it's important that we clear up the confusion that's probably out across america. women are at kitchen tables trying to figure out now what is their next step. i think the next step is what they've always done, which is certainly take a look at the guideline recommendations but then have a conversation with your physician because the individual case history, the individual family history, what your body type is, what your background is is the best indicator of how often you should have this very important screening technique, a mammogram, and how frequently it should be done. >> are you telling women to ignore the recommendations of this panel? >> i'm telling women to take a look at the recommendations of the panel, which are, you know, looking globally at tens of thousands of cases, but then take that information and have a conversation with your doctor. >> are you saying that women should still consider having mammograms beginning at age 40? >> absolutely. >> some people are saying that your response to the panel's recommendations are essentially throwing this panel un
